Snow Day... Kinda

A couple weeks ago, we got some snow... kinda. It was snowing big 'ole flakes. I knew it wasn't going to stay long ( I had been watching the weather ), so I told the kids we should go out and play! Tobin was so excited that it was all I could do to get him to put socks on! Caroline wasn't sure what to think. She was too little last year to "play" in any snow, and was afraid to step off the porch into it...

She wasn't quite sure what to think at first...

He was wanting to sled, and there wasn't enough yet... especially when he discovered the snow melted when he walked through it.
This face he is making is a face his daddy makes. So funny!

She kept yelling, "Tobin, catch em! Bubba, catch em!" She was hypnotized!


Why are slippery sidewalks so fun to play on?

She was so delighted when she realized it wasn't anything to be scared of, and had so much fun running through the snowflakes!


OOpps, took a tumble and caught herself, then she was mad because her hands were cold. No one listens to mommy when she says, "you better wear some gloves" Ha! She was still Joyful.
Can you see his "Super Tobin" shirt peeking through his coat? He REFUSED to put on long sleeves. I am learning to choose my battles.
What a sweet smile from my sweet boy.
He had to take his hat off and "feel" the snowflakes. What a precious big boy!

The photo above, and the photo above... take a good look... they are making the same face with their chins and lips. So funny! They are cut out of the same cloth for sure!
She was so elated about the flakes falling!


So, a zipper pull breaks? No biggie in our house :) Just use a huge safety pin, Ha!
Arms up high, reaching for the snowflakes!
We're cold, let's go inside!

She wouldn't let me help her get her "boops" off. "I do it by myself!" She looked precious in her little snow suit :)
It was all melted by the time they woke up from their naps this day. I am still crossing my fingers that we get a big "fun" snow this winter, before spring comes. It is so blasted cold and windy here, it might as well snow, right?

**********
I uploaded a TON of pics to Facebook- from Halloween through New Years-- so I've decided not to play catch up. Check out the photos I've uploaded there. If we're not friends, why not? Ask me to be your friend!


STAY WARM! Make some sweet memories with your family this week :)
